MiniTec make the workplace more efficient and lean
06 December 2019
The principal objective of a “lean” operation is to eliminate costly wastage. So, how can MiniTec help achieve this objective?
The modular aluminium profile system designed and manufactured by MiniTec can be deployed in a myriad of industrial applications from machine guarding to assembly lines, workbenches and logistics and handling systems to name just a few.
The main headings under which MiniTec will help make the manufacturing environment lean are:
• Ergonomically designed structures thus avoiding unnecessary and wasteful handling
• Re-usability – systems are easy to assemble and re-use in different formats
• Customised design and assembly service to suit customer needs
The engineers at MiniTec will design and manufacture the installation that suits the available space and workflow requirements of the operation.
A wide range of accessories will ensure that operators can do their jobs on the lines in the most ergonomically comfortable and safe environment, keeping unnecessary and counter intuitive handling to a minimum.
At the heart of the MiniTec system is the unique Powerlock fastening method which requires no specific preparation, pre-machining or special tools and uses standard off the shelf fasteners. The use of standard M8 fasteners reduces the cost of the overall package of profiles and locking system considerably compared with many other systems which incorporate brand specific locking systems. Thus, the only tool required to set up or dismantle a system is an Allen Key.
Easy to re-use, avoids wastage
Precisely because the system uses standard fasteners means that structures can be easily dismantled and set up again using the original components. This is perfect for dealing with new factory layouts and keeps wastage of valuable assets to a minimum.
Aluminium profiles come in a number of standard lengths making the selection of optimised profiles simple and further contributing to reducing wastage by having to order excessive numbers and lengths of profiles to build the installation.
MiniTec are often called upon to come up with custom built designs of work benches or tool cupboards/drawers, a challenge made easy with the flexible modular profile system. Similarly, many logistics operations need particular trolleys or transportation devices to move finished or part finished parts between operations. MiniTec have the design expertise to customise exactly to the customer requirement.
